The ERCST CBAM Project Part II Inception Meeting

December 9, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This meeting is on the record | Press is invited

As part of the European Green Deal, implementation of a BCA is once again being considered as a measure to address competitiveness concerns within the EU. According to the roadmap for the European Green Deal, and European Council conclusions from July, a proposal for a BCA for “selected sectors” will be released in 2021 and should be introduced by the end of 2022.

This meeting is the inception of the 2nd part of ERCST’s project on Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU. The first part culminated in a report published in September on the issues and options for introducing a BCA in the EU. 


During this meeting, ERCST will outline the research activities, as well as the methodology and the expected deliveries during this project, which will last until the end of 2021.

The deliverables will include

  • Sectoral deep dive regarding the suitability of a BCA to address carbon leakage issues,
  • ERCST proposal for a BCA in the EU,
  • Analysis of the Commission’s proposal expected in June 2021
  • A framework of different policy measures and tools to address carbon leakage.
